No Power. No Authority.

The kids and I went on a walk yesterday. We were almost home when ds blurts out, "That's what I don't like about being a power or authority!" I don't even know what we were talking about that brought that on. He was probably lamenting over something that he couldn't do or had to do, or something older dd could do and he couldn't do. It's hard being six!

I'd say that's a good thing about being a power or authority. How would you like to be six and have to make earth shattering decisions with lasting consequences..."should I buy or sell?", "invade or not invade?", "plastic or paper?", "beef or chicken?".

It would be pretty scary to have six yr olds running around with power and authority...though in some families you kind of get the impression that the kids are the ones with power and authority...

LOL - all our childhood we looked forward to doing what we wanted when we wanted... only to be foiled by having children who have schedules and school and suddenly I have a 6 year old that rules my life... when is it my turn?
